I wish there was more than a picture to this post, but I'm still intrigued by the concept of plug computing. From Wikipedia: "A plug computer is a small form factor network-attached server for use in the home. It is a lower cost and lower power alternative to a PC-based home server. In effect, a plug computer is a network appliance that is fully enclosed in an AC power plug or AC adapter." Tom Hoffman pictures one for SchoolTools, an ubuntu box the size of an iPod. It works, he says. What would be nice is a link explaining how (send me one and I'll pass it along here).
